I feel justified...

I've told the story at least a couple hundred times of our summer vacation to Pennsylvania about two years ago when we ended up evacuating the state in the middle of the night. You see, it rained, and rained, and rained. For days on end. More rain then they've had in years. And we were camping in the mountains south of Carlisle near Gettysburg during the storm. Eventually, after spending the afternoon helping the campground owners try to save the campers that were in the low, river level area of the campground (where we started out I might add) we ended up shutting the camper up and heading for Maine at around Midnight. As we crossed the mountains headed for the New York border they were calling a state wide State of Emergency and evacuating towns all along the way.
Believe me, you've never really lived till you've been knee deep in swollen river water trying to help someone and they tell you to watch out for snakes! That should have been enough to send us Mainers heading for home. But then stupidity will usually win out when it comes to our vacations... instead we just moved to higher ground.


Anyway, I don't think that people have ever quite believed me when I say how bad it was... And then I was watching the deleted scenes from GhostHunters Season 1 and low and behold... they were in Pittsburgh for the momentous trip and caught the conditions on camera. Check it out...
